About the Author

USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J Stewart can't remember a time she didn't have a book in her hands or a story in her head. Early obsessions with Star Wars, Star Trek, and Wonder Woman set her on the path to creating sweet to sexy pulse-pounding romances for her independent heroines. Anna lives in Northern California where she deals with a serious Supernatural addiction and an overly affectionate cat named Snickers.

The Nightmare is Back. Allie Hollister, a child psychologist and consultant with law enforcement, is called in on a child abduction case. The similarities of this crime and the disappearance and death of a close friend twenty years ago are striking. And threatening. Forced out of his chosen profession as firefighter, Max Kellan moves in with his brother and niece. When the little girl goes missing, all he wants is her safe return. He’s had his fill of psychologists. With the same goal, but different opinions on procedure, Allie and Max end up in close proximity. And that leads to all sorts of different problems. Ms. Stewart has written a fast paced traditional romantic suspense. While this is the third in the series, it was also a standalone story with Allie’s friends contributing to the plot without distraction.

Dr. Allie Hollister, a child psychologist, is awakened at six in the morning by a phone call. Hope Kellan, a patient of Allie’s, has gone missing. Hope’s parents couldn’t be located, and the parents of one of Hope’s friends phone Allie. Twenty years ago, Allie’s best friend Chloe Evans, also a nine year-old red-haired girl, was kidnapped and murdered, and Allie has been trying ever since to know what had happened. It all feels surreal to her, and too distressing; Allie is struggling to keep it together, as she knows full well that the killer wants to make her suffer. All of Allie’s friends have rallied: Cole and Jack from the Sacramento PD, Vince a P.I., and her childhood friends Eden and Simone, who were also devastated by Chloe’s murder. Not long after the upsetting phone call, Hope’s uncle Max Kellan arrives; he is frantic, he hates doctors, and Allie understands only too well what he’s going through, she’s been there. I couldn’t wait to see how the fabulous HONOR BOUND series would wrap up, and it is the outstanding conclusion I was hoping for! GONE IN THE NIGHT is one of the best romantic suspense stories ever, as is the whole series for that matter. Each of the three books features one of Chloe’s friends: Eden, Simone, and Allie, whose chosen professions are related to their childhood traumatic experience. I find GONE IN THE NIGHT difficult to review because it is simply mind-blowing. It’s riveting from the very first page, and to my amazement, it could stand alone. But do yourself a favour and read the three books, because they are just too good to bypass. Every character is superbly drawn, the characters grow as the series goes along; I felt I was going through their ordeal and that they were my friends as well. GONE IN THE NIGHT is extremely fast-paced, there is not one paragraph of filler, the plot is very intricate and gripping, and the tension lasts almost until the very end. I held my breath more than a few times! Ms. Stewart has written another amazing book, where every character has a role to play; there are jaw-dropping revelations, more twists and turns that you can count, and finally Allie finds someone to love and who loves her in return: Max, who is just as appealing, multifaceted and fascinating as every character in this series. In my opinion, Anna J. Stewart stands up there, alongside the best crime thriller novelists around. GONE IN THE NIGHT is also very well-balanced, as the romance blends right in, and is just as perfect as everything else. I do hope Ms. Stewart has a little something in store for Jack in the future. GONE IN THE NIGHT has another fantastic heroine, an air-tight plot, a wonderful hero, great writing, impeccable pacing, and just the right amount of romance. GONE IN THE NIGHT is as good as it gets! And if I could, I would give an extra star for the cover who is a great depiction of Allie, down to her nervous tic. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

As others have said, some might say this is a standalone book (in a series) but you would be missing SO much if you did that! I urge you to read all three books in this series because this book is amazing if you do! It will not mean 1/2 as much to you if you don't! The trio of best friends lost their 4th best buddy, Chloe, when they were 9 years old and it has haunted them ever since. However, it haunted Allie most of all. She is the most "self-contained" of the three women and she's always felt things a little bit deeper than the other two. This is her story. She has become a psychologist so she can help others deal with things like she's had to deal with. It has been 20 years since the death of Chloe but she still thinks about it all the time. Out of the blue there is a kidnapping of a girl that is eerily similar to Chloe. Hope is Allie's patient and she has to help find her! She meet's Hope's Uncle Max, who has some issues of his own in his past but will stop at nothing to find his niece. The trio of best friends, along with their significant others and various law enforcement rush to do everything they can to find Hope. Somehow it is connected to Chloe's disappearance and death. Allie is at the center of it though and she has to figure out why. I couldn't put this book down. Not only because it was the last book in the series but the characters and Anna's writing keep you on the edge of your seat! There is a lot of suspense in this book and definite chemistry between Allie and Max! The ending was very good! I highly recommend it - and the first two books in the series too!

Gone In The Night is the third book in the Honor Bound trilogy by Anna J. Stewart. It can be read as a standalone but let me say that you are missing out on an AMAZING trilogy. Each of the first two books has a story all their own, with an overall mystery that involves three very best friends. GitN is Allie’s story and it also wraps up the overall plot of the trilogy. Allie Hollister is a psychologist. She studied psychology as she wanted to learn all she could about the human psyche to try to understand what led up to the death of a (fourth) childhood friend. That’s putting it simply but if you read the book, the author will create such a strong bond (between the reader and Allie) for you that it will feel like you are experiencing everything Allie does. One of her patients, a little girl, is kidnapped and Allie consults with the police to help find Hope. She meets Hope’s uncle, Max Kellan, and the sparks ignite from there. I’ve just written an oversimplification of this book but I’d like to tell you how I felt when I read it…and I read it a few times. I was annoyed when someone interrupted me because I had just gotten “to a good part” and had to put the book down. Trust that they were ALL good parts so I was often miffed. Even knowing what would happen next, during my second reading, my heart was pounding, I needed to know what happened next, I wanted to give out hugs to all the characters that needed them. Allie and Max have their own story, in this book, and it touched my heart. Loved these two! And if you have read the other two books, some of the revelations will shock you, make you smile, and just about break your heart. Of course, we are also rewarded with the end of the story for the theme of these books and as I enjoyed all three of them, I certainly felt like celebrating. Highly recommend this series and loved all three books. Gone In The Night will certainly get your blood pumping and have you cheering Allie and Max on in the race to find his niece AND their HEA.

Mystery and doubt abound as we race towards the answers they so desperately need! Twenty years after their best friend was kidnapped and murdered, an eerily similar case pops into their lives. Similar age, similar set-up, nearly identical looking ... and a nine year old girl simply vanishes! Allie Hollister is quick to pull her friends and their connections in to try to find this little girl before it's too late. A great conclusion to the case! Psychologist Allie Hollister gets called out when one of her patients disappears from a sleepover. The child has been troubled, so at first they aren't expecting foul play, until all clues start lining up in Allie's head and pointing toward this being the same person that terrorized them years ago and just resurfaced into their lives recently! Max Kellan will stop at nothing to find his niece, and he's putting himself right in the middle of the investigation to make sure he is there to help. When he can tell Allie is holding something back from him, he sets out to find answers and to uncover what is really going on here!

I loved Gone in the Night! I was eagerly awaiting Allie's story to see if Chloe's murder would be solved. Every time that I thought I knew who the killer was, there was another twist. Anna J. Stewart did a great job of keeping the identity of Chloe's killer a mystery until the very end. I highly recommend the entire Honor Bound series! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

So, I want to make this clear right off the bat. While Gone in the Night , like many series books, is released and touted as a standalone, I highly dispute this! I'll admit, I hate reading series books out of order! Yes, 99% of them, it's not a big dealing you don't read them all. But this book and series...to me, it's a huge deal!! As the ongoing mystery into the murder of 9 year old Chloe evolves, I personally think its imperative to start at the beginning. Especially because of a big "holy shit, I did not see THAT coming" moment almost half way through the book!! Do NOT flip to that part and cheat yourselves, though. Because while I've been waiting for Chloe's murderer to be revealed, this book is ultimately Allie's story. Allie is the most self-contained of her trio of friends, and looks to be least outwardly affected by the events of 20 years ago. But that theory is proven wrong with the abduction of her patient, Hope Kellan. This kidnapping hits a little too close to home for Allie and throws her usual calm nature for a loop. Add in Hope's very protective uncle Max, who's fighting his own demons, and you get a couple who's chemistry scorches at first contact. As an ex-firefighter, Max has just enough second hand knowledge working with law inforcement to know he's being kept in the dark by the police and by Allie. That confrontation between the family of the victim and these trying to get her back were explosive and very well written. Fast paced, sexy, and exciting, both the relationships between Max and Allie, Allie and her friends and the climax of Chloe's murder rates a definite 5 star rating for me. Anna J Stewart's books, whether suspenseful or family-centric, are always a must read for this rabid romance reader! I hear there might be more Honor Bound books...I'd love to read *****'s story!!
